Octal Serializer/De-Serializer Chips
The company offers a compelling intra-system signaling solution for designers of high-performance networking equipment, such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet systems and OC-192 SONET/SDH optical systems, as well as SAN systems built around the Infiniband and Fibre Channel standards.
Innovations in signal integrity enable these systems to be built with more than a meter of FR4 printed circuit board (PCB) trace length, plus two backplane connectors. This more than doubles the objective described in XAUI (10 Gigabit eXtended Attachment Unit Interface), the emerging 10 Gbps Ethernet standard, which targets the distance objective across a PCB to 50cm and a connector. System designers looking to utilize the multilane 3.125 Gbps technique can now design new systems or extend the life of existing systems that employ electrical backplanes. Velio has also demonstrated interoperability of its SerDes with optical transceiver devices.
